"A great journey... A new love... A dark secret revealed. Evreux, France, 1788: Before she is Zoey's favorite professor and the House of Night's powerful horse mistress... Lenobia is just a normal 16-year-old girl - with enough problems to last a lifetime. As the illegitimate daughter of a powerful baron, she has never quite belonged, and instead has to watch her spoiled half-sister, Cecile, get anything she wants. As if that's not enough, her remarkable beauty draws unwanted attention wherever she goes. For once, she would like to just fit in. But when fate intervenes, Lenobia suddenly finds herself surrounded by other girls, on a ship bound for New Orleans, where they will be married off to the city's richest Frenchmen. And they're not alone.... An evil bishop who is skilled in Dark magic makes the same journey. His appetite for lovely young women makes him dangerous - most of all to Lenobia, who caught his eye back in France. So she remains hidden, making secret visits to the ship's stables, where a handsome young man and his beautiful Percheron horses soon capture her attention. Will they make it to land before the bishop discovers her true identity and a powerful evil breaks loose? And will Lenobia follow her heart, even if it puts lives at risk? Find out more about one of your favorite professors in the next heart-thumping House of Night Novella"--… (més)

I really liked the negative portrayal of the Catholic Church in this one as I thought it was accurate... how many times have we seen when evil/bad priests and bishops are just sent somewhere else for someone else to deal with?

Unlike the last short story I read set in this world, this book does not strike me as entirely pointless. Lenobia isn’t dead, she’s a semi-important character and this story is useful. After all, a plot point in the main series is that Neferet has introduced a horse-loving human (that sounded wrong, especially in a series with the shagging of evil bulls) in order to get under Lenobia’s skin, especially since she has sworn an oat never to love a human again.

That begs several questions! That needs expanding and explaining! That can give us a great insight into Lenobia’s past and the no-doubt epic circumstances that have shaped her and caused her to swear such an epic vow that is causing her so much trouble to this day…

…except it kind of undermines all of that.

Because the whole set up made me picture Lenobia having an epic, tragic, terrible love affair. Perhaps she loved someone over years of great passion but, alas, the aging of the vampire inevitably took him away from her. Or the prejudice of the mortal world wouldn’t let them be together. Some epic reason why she had lost all faith in humanity as potential love interests – either human society or human frailty has convinced her that this would never be possible.

Which turns out not to be true at all! Instead it turns out that she fell in love with someone after knowing them for a few weeks (no more than 6, in fact considerably less) when she was 19 and then they died due to magical means. And she hasn’t sworn her oath because she thinks love between a human and a vampire is impossible – but because she is FAITHFUL to this dead man.

The man in question was a mixed race Black man (referred to as “mulatto” and “quadroon” in this book due to the era) who was convinced there love could never be because of racism. Lenobia continually dismissed this (which came across as a complete inability to listen to the world he was describing) and to try and convince him she decided to epicly declare she would love him or no other man! (So he better run away with her or she would be lonely forever – which, by the way, is coercive and gross).

It was AMAZING to see Lenobia’s strength at such a young age. It’s also easy to see why Lenobia doesn’t fall into the darkness that Neferet brings to the House of Night. Her love interest is a really sweet person, and overall explains why she has the feelings she does towards relationships with humans. He is a Creole, and I swear every time he talked I heard the voice in my head as Renee Lanier from True Blood. Yes I know lame, but the voice fit with his personality. I definitely recommend this book to the fans of the House of Night series. You won’t be disappointed, I promise!

Lenobia's Vow is a short story about the life of the horse keeper, Lenobia, in The House Of Night series. It tells about lenobia's life before she was marked.
Lenobia is the daughter of the Baron and her mother. The two parents were divorced and she was known as the "bastard daughter of the Baron". She worked around the castle like a slave with her mother. The cherished daughter Cecil, died the morning she was supposed to travel to the new world, New Orleans. The driver hadn't gotten the message yet. Lenobia's mother couldn't give her a good life so she had Lenobia dress up as Cecil and go to New Orleans on the ship. She hesitantly agreed for her mothers sake. Lenobia got onto the ship and locked herself in her room for the first two weeks because a bishop she knew was on the ship. She finally ran into him one morning and everyone found out she was lying, even Martin. Martin was a black man who worked on the ship. He groomed the horses and one morning he discovered Lenobia grooming one of the horses. At that moment it was "love at first sight' even though he knew they couldn't be together. They admit that they love each other. Do they get to be together? This is a good book if you have read the House of Night series and want to know the background stories of some characters.

Talk about writing a character your readers will love to hate.(Not Lenobia) I wish I had read this before Destined or that I owned Destined so I could go back and reference some things that I think might be going on. Overall a very enjoyable read with very emotional ties. ( )
